  30/6/2016: LAST OF OUR WEEKLY NEWS REPORTS
Today, all the festivals, screen organisations and screen productions have their own websites, their own newsletters and social media outlets. We are no longer the essential carriers of Australian movie news; and news is now reported hourly, not weekly.

Hence we will no longer publish our weekly news reports after June 30, 2016.

• News archives search options: BY YEAR, MONTH & DATE in the dropdown at the top of this page, OR

- in the SEARCH ENGINE FIELD found on the top left of the page, by subject matter, eg: AFI Awards ... etc.
